The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with Jake Molloy, a key contributor in the film and former Regional Organiser for RMT Workers Union representing offshore energy workers; and Kenny Alexander, a Grangemouth oil worker-turned-activist.
Jake Molloy spent four decades in the oil sector before retiring from his role as RMT Union's regional organiser in Aberdeen representing offshore oil and gas workers. Recognised for championing improved offshore conditions, Jake's insights are instrumental in The Oil Machine. His advocacy extends to ensuring a Just Transition in energy, highlighted by his contribution to the report Our Power: Offshore Workers’ Demands for a Just Energy Transition, published earlier this year by Friends of the Earth Scotland.
Kenny Alexander, once deeply entrenched in the petrochemical industry, spent 35 years working in North Sea gas and around Grangemouth's oil and gas complexes. Today, he champions environmental causes. With personal ties to Montrose and offshore training experiences there, he offers a unique perspective on the environmental conversation.
